Fight those slasher remake blues with a Retro Slasher double or triple feature in the comfort of your own living room. Horror movie marathons were common back during the glory days of 42nd Street and southern drive-inns and the following suggestions are for fans looking for a nostalgic slasher fix. If any Retro Slasher readers have suggestions for a kick ass slasher combination feel free to write them in the response section. I’m interested in seeing your ideas.
